Parsonnet et al developed a model to predict operative mortality for adults having surgery for acquired adult heart disease. The model uses risk factors identified by multivariate analysis that were selected to be readily available in any hospital and objective. It was developed at the Beth Israel Medical Center in Newark, New Jersey, and tested at two other medical centers.
